Qatargas is the world's largest liquefied natural gas (LNG) company. It produces and supplies the globe with 42 million metric tonnes of LNG annually from across its four ventures—Qatargas 1, Qatargas 2, Qatargas 3, and Qatargas 4. It is headquartered in Doha, Qatar, and maintains its upstream assets in Ras Laffan, Qatar. Natural gas is supplied to Qatargas's LNG trains from Qatar's North Field, by far the world's largest non-associated gas field. Together with RasGas, it reached a record LNG production of 77 million tonnes per year in December 2010.==History==Qatargas (Qatargas Liquified Gas Company Limited) was established in 1984 as a joint venture between Qatar Petroleum, ExxonMobil and other partners. In the following years the company began developing the North Field and erected the first three LNG trains (Train 1, 2 and 3) with a design capacity of 3.3 million tonnes per year each. The trains were built in 1996, 1997 and 1998 respectively. - Source: Wikipedia
